Henderson, Allison; And Others
This volume summarizes information provided by state education agencies on participation in the Chapter 1 Migrant Education Program for the 1988-89 school year. Of 382,394 total unduplicated program participants in 1988-89, 77 percent were Hispanic and 11 percent were White not Hispanic. As classified by migrant status, 50 percent of participants were settled out (formerly migrant), 34 percent were interstate migrant, and 16 percent were intrastate migrant. Almost 4 percent were children of migratory fishers. Males comprised 52 percent of participants and females 48 percent. There were 333,042 participants in the regular term, up 8 percent from the previous year, and 125,427 participants in the summer term, up 19 percent. Participation increased in all grade spans, with the largest increases in grades 7-9 and the smallest increases in prekindergarten and kindergarten. In the regular term, attendance and guidance services were provided to 64 percent of participants, reading to 40 percent, other supporting services to 39 percent, health services to 33 percent, and mathematics to 30 percent. In the summer term, 78 percent of participants received attendance and guidance services, 62 percent received reading, and 58 percent received other instructional services. Migrant education programs funded 11,065 full-time equivalent staff in the regular term and 10,529 in the summer term. About three-quarters of total staff were teachers and teacher aides. The ratio of participants to teachers and teacher aides combined was 43.1 in the regular term and 16.9 in the summer. Numerous data tables compare present and previous year data and provide participation and staffing information by state. Includes the state reporting form, form instructions, and a glossary.
